The hotel is very well located in Chinatown and next to Little India. The access with the subway is very easy. The price is good and the staff very friendly. The rooms are tiny and without windows. We just stayed inside the room to sleep and it was good enough. The breakfast is basic but fine.

Stayed here on our first night in KL. Accomodation does seem to be pricier here so finding this for a good price was great! Rooms are small but fine especially for few days, beds comfy, great atmosphere in hostel guy behind reception really friendly. On the night we watched films in the chill out area which was nice.

Who needs windows in the night? This is not ironical, I didn't mind not having windows, since it's too hot outside anyway, so the AC is fine enough. The longhouse is just a long corridor stuffed with rooms. they have fairly thin walls but that is no problem. Breakfast is continental, simple but fine. Who wants more can go round... More

We stayed 3 nights at the Longhouse, and for $16 it is one of the cheapest places in KL for a double room. The hostel is quiet, in a great location about 1 minute from Petaling Street, and there are plenty of bathrooms for rooms. The staff and friendly and guests were relaxed and sociable. The only reason for not... More

Really cheap single rooms (for the price of a dorm bed in some other places) Basic but clean rooms, comfortable bed and pillow, fan and two power plugs, no window though Also very thin walls (actually not walls but plywood), not for the noise-sensitive... Fastest internet I've had in a long time (already travelling for 7 months now) Filtered water,... More

We stayed here for one night in KL and flew out the next day. The location is really great and allowed us to see everything we wanted to in just one evening. The room was small with no window but was fine for us, as we just needed a place to hang our heads. The staff were not particularly helpful.... More

Check in on 19th November 2013 for 2 nights. Single room without air conditioned only cost me RM 25 per night. It's totally worth it! The location itself is perfecto to explored KL City, near to Petaling Street and Central Market. Pasar Seni LRT station just 2 minutes walk from the Longhouse. It's really convenient! The bathroom is clean and... More

3 of us stayed here on two occasions in their dorm room for 4 people, on both occasions we had the room to ourselves. Now for £4 p/p/p/n you can't ask for too much so I would say longhouse is good value for money. The rooms are really simple, comfy mattress, very soft pillows and enough room to place things... More

Basic it may be, but The Longhouse is a lovely clean hostel in a very convenient location. It's very close to the Pasar Seni LRT station, excellent value for money & has fast wi fi. The staff are very friendly & helpful and made me feel very welcome. I will definitely be staying here again!
